How frustrating is Angel?!

How frustrating is Angel?!
How frustrating is Juan Pablo Angel?

I mean, we all know the bloke can play a bit. Its only a couple of seasons ago that he scored 23 league and cup goals and I will never forget that screamer against Chelsea in the League Cup Quarter final.

But since his injury at the beginning of last season he hasn't produced the goods. I have to admit to having a soft-spot for JPA. Without wishing to use a D'Olism, I have always found him to be an honest player. He doesn't strike me as being from the same mould as, say, Milan Baros. He seems to be the type of player who just gets on with it in training and doesn't give the manager or club any headaches.

On the field too, though he has been bloody awful at times this season, at least he seems to be TRYING. Working hard, helping out in defence (although I wish he hadn't against Spurs), and fighting for the ball. But dear oh dear, he just seems to have lost it now.

I don't suppose it will be long now before JPA leaves the club, when he does I will always be wondering about what might have been. He has to be the most frustrating player I have ever seen in a Villa shirt.

In a word, VERY. I still say we don't get the right supply but nevertheless, his goalscoring record is hardly that of a top striker.

He's no good. Just as much a waste of money as Watson, Unsworth, Stone, Collymore, Hadji and Balaban !

Unfortunately agreed, potential unrealised, such a waste, he had it, where did it go? seasons of missmanagement perhaps, battered his confidence so much he is a shadow of his former self.

Truly frustrating. I think he's going blind, the shots he makes, but he get's an "A" for effort, and for being a swell guy. He's like a chicken, really: expending an infinite amount of energy not accomplishing really much at all.

Frustrating on a stick. He needs the right partner to play off. Him and DV were great togther. A big un up there may help. From what I hear, he leaves his form on the training pitch. Does lack pace though, but gives his all.

What about Young on the right flank and Carew and Gabby up front? Young can paly more naturally on the wing than Gabby.
